You’ve set the goal for the New Year to live a healthier and more active lifestyle. That’s the easy part, the hard part is keeping that promise to yourself. Starting and keeping an exercise routine can be very rewarding, but finding that motivation can be a challenge.
You should first evaluate your priorities and make sure your health is on the top of the list. To reach that goal you should know you have to be dedicated, consistent and focused. Until you put your health first, your efforts to become healthy will more than likely fall short.
Does the thought of physical activity sound dreadful? Keep in mind that those who are physically active live longer. Research shows that 30 minutes of a brisk walk can significantly attribute to longevity and help improve various areas of your health, such as lower blood pressure, control blood sugar, improve cholesterol levels and build stronger, denser bones.
